  2. There's a nice pub just down the right hand fork there.
  3. Ā£100 a spring? Have you called/had a look at the following to see what they have and can get to you: Saabits, Partsforsaabs, GSF, Eibach, Abbot Racing
  4. I find airfield vehicles oddly interesting. Possibly because they're often a bit unusual and kept going for a longer than normal life. It's a fair bet the Land Rover is ex-RAF. The matching R reg suggests the TACR2 (Truck, Aircraft Crash Rescue 2) and the Land Rover were both given civil plates when they were acquired from military surplus around the end of 1977. The lack of MOT history suggests they've stayed offroad (/on an airfield) since. TACRs were airfield emergency vehicles used by the RAF and Royal Navy. TACR1s were based on an uprated series II or III chassis. TACR2s were based on the Carmichael Commando 6 wheeled chassis http://www.range-rover-classic.com/Home/land-rover-brochures/range-rover-specials/carmichael-ltd---uk GEC were at Rochester in some form or other from 1967 to 1998 (https://www.baesystems.com/en-uk/heritage/Rochester). The GEC logo on the LandRover could be due to GEC taking on the management of the airfield at the start of 1979 (https://rochesterairport.co.uk/about/history/).

  6. When ordering curry by the numbers on the menu gives you ideas: "I'll have a 9, 86....
  7. You can access the Toyota electronic parts catalogue here: https://toyota.epc-data.com/ It covers the Duet (which Google suggests was what the 98-04 Sirion was sold as on the JDM) The Waterlooville branch of Snows had someone working in parts back in 2018/2019 who was good at tracking down obscure parts. They might still be there. Back then Hedge End weren't as helpful on the parts front.
  8. What you get if you drive into dry stone walls? Dents filled with custard instead of wob? (Devon knows how they make it so creamy)
  9. Alternatively, it could be washer fluid. If I filled the washer fluid tank on mine above a certain level it used to leak and drip off the front bumper.
  10. Thank you Santa. Mints, chocolates and a Christmas 1985 Autocar magazine full of shite. Road tests include the Skyship 500 (the article doesn't mention it but I'm fairly sure it's the airship that was in A View To A Kill) compared to a range of alternatives from the Harrier, through the space shuttle to a beer dray. And the first Peugeot built in Britain, the 309
